Caroline spins around the bat until she is very dizzy. She then leans over and picks up the tennis ball and throws it up in the air. Using the bat, she tries to swing to hit the ball. Since she is so dizzy, she cannot orient herself correctly and misses.

Duck Duck Goose


One child is ‘it’. The rest sit in a circle. The ‘it’ child walks around the perimeter of the circle tapping each child on the head saying ‘duck’. When the ‘it’ child calls someone a ‘goose’, the ‘it’ child must make it around the circle to the sitting place of the ‘goose’ child, while the ‘goose’ child must attempt to tag the ‘it’ child before he/she makes it to where the ‘goose’ was sitting.


All of the children are sitting in a circle and Isabelle is walking around tapping everyone on the head, saying ‘Duck’ for each person she taps. Then she taps Linda on the head and says ‘Goose’.

Isabelle makes it before Linda can tag her, so now Linda gets to be the tapper.

Everyone is a Musician


Each player writes a song onto a card and adds it to a bowl. Hand out any/all instruments in the room. Take turns choosing a song from the bowl and trying to play it with the instrument given.


Gabriel chooses a cowbell as his instrument. The song that he picks is ‘Happy Birthday’. He then tries to play ‘Happy Birthday’ on his cowbell.

Freeze Dance


All children begin dancing when the music is playing, but when the music is turned off by the judge they must freeze in place. The judge determines who was still moving and eliminates those children. The last player standing wins!


Dad turns the music on and all the kids start dancing. He stops the music abruptly and the children freeze. Little Jamie is caught doing an extra dance move after the music has stopped, so he is out!

Guess the Picture


Have everyone write the name of an object or famous person on pieces of paper and then mix them all together. Break into two teams. Each team chooses an artist who will have one minute to pick clues and draw them on a sheet of paper so that his/her team can guess what he/she is drawing. The artist cannot talk or write words or letters.


John chooses the clue ‘elephant’ and then tries to draw it. His teammates guess it correctly so he moves onto the next clue. They repeat until the one minute is up.



All players wear hats throughout the evening - pass them out at the beginning of the night. At the beginning of the night, one person is chosen to be the hat man/woman. Whenever he/she takes off their hat throughout the night, everyone in the room must follow suit. Whoever still has the hat on loses!


Taylor is the hat woman. During the night, Uncle Jimmy is in the middle of a story and Taylor discreetly takes her hat off. Most people see her and take their hat off. Only Uncle Jimmy is left because he does not notice. He loses.

Hot Potato


All children should sit in a circle with one standing with his/her eyes closed. The players sitting in the circle pass a ball to each other. No player can hold the ball for more than a second. At any point the standing player can yell ‘HOT POTATO!’ and whoever is holding the ball at that time is the out!


All children are sitting in a circle, except for Susie. She is standing with her eyes closed. The sitting children are throwing the ball to each other, being careful not to hold it for more than a second. Then Susie yells "Hot Potato!" and Melinda is holding the ball. She is out!

Ice Cube


Hand out ice cubes to everyone. When the game starts, players can try everything they can to melt the ice cube quicker than their opponents. They can rub it between their hands or on their shirt, or blow on it. Whoever melts it first wins! No cheating (you cannot put it in your mouth or stomp on it or use equipment to melt it).


John is given an icecube. At the start of the game he blows hot air on the ice cube with his mouth to try to melt it. He does it faster than anyone else and wins.

It’s a Ping Pong Ball


Two children sit on opposite sides of a table on their knees with their arms behind their back. A ping pong ball is placed in the middle of the table. When the judge says GO, they both try to blow the ping pong ball off the opponents’ side of the table.


Gregory and Allison are at separate ends of the table. The ping pong ball is placed in the middle and the judge signals to start blowing. Allison blows so hard that the ball falls off of the table on Gregory’s side. Allison Wins!

Let Them Eat Cake

Like and Dislike


Each person grabs a blank card and writes one thing they love and one thing they hate. Then, shuffle the cards and redistribute. Each player takes guesses at who wrote the card they received.


After everyone writes down their dislike and likes on a card and then shuffles and redistributes, Caroline chooses to read first. She reads ‘I like baseball, but I hate snakes.’ Then, each player takes turns guessing who it was that wrote that card. Caroline chooses Vince, while Eric and Stefanie think it was Fred. It was Vince!



Have two people hold opposite ends of a pole. Players take turns trying to walk under the pole by leaning backwards. If a player falls or touches the pole, he/she is out. Each round the pole gets slightly lower.


Julissa is trying to walk under the pole. She leans backwards so that she can make it under. Unfortunately she hits the pole with her forehead so she is out. Next Sherry tries to make it under the pole and does so without touching it or falling so she gets to move onto the next round.

Mummy Wrap


Divide children into two teams and assign each team a ‘mummy’. Give each team one roll of toilet paper. When the game starts, the kids must wrap the ‘mummy’ in toilet paper. Whichever team finishes their roll of toilet paper first is the winner.


Vince is chosen to be the mummy. His team hurries to wrap him up in toilet paper. They finish their roll before the other team, therefore they are the winners!

Musical Chairs


Set up chairs so that there is one less chair than there are number of players. Children are instructed to walk in a circle around the chairs as music plays. When the music stops, the children must sit in a seat. Whoever is without a seat is out. Each round you take away a chair until there is only one player left!


Four kids are walking around a group of three chairs. When the music stops, Jim tries to get to a chair but Timmy, Alice, and Trevor sit in seats before he can get to one. Jim is out. The game continues until there is only one person left sitting.



Assign one person to start the game. He/she writes a sentence that starts a story then passes the pen and paper to the next person in line. They add a sentence, continuing the story. This continues until the last person gets to write a sentence to finish the story. Then you read the mashup story aloud.


Derek starts the story by writing, ‘A man is walking down the street...’, then Leslie goes next and writes, ‘and then he trips and falls.’ Then Samuel takes the paper and continues the story to say, ‘when he gets up he realizes he has lost his glasses...’ They continue taking turns writing until they last person goes or they decide the story is finished.

Off Limits Necklace


The host of the party announces a forbidden word at the start of a party, and then hands out a beaded necklace to every player. Anytime a guest catches another guest saying that word, they must give up their necklace. Whoever has the most necklaces at the end of the party wins!


The party host, Liz, determines the word at her party is "cute". In her first conversation with Susie, Susie says the word "cute". Liz catches her and Susie has to give up her necklace.

Orange Pass


Players hold an orange between their chin and neck. They then attempt to pass an orange from one player to another without using their hands.


Fred is holding the orange between his neck and chin. He positions his body sideways so that Cindy can grab the orange with her neck and chin. They drop the orange so they lose.

Party Bag


Start by placing assorted items into a brown paper bag without the children seeing. Try everyday objects like candy, fruit, toothpicks, or Q tips. Each child then takes turns feeling into the bag and guessing what the objects are. Whoever guesses the most wins.


Frank feels inside the bag and thinks he is feeling a toothbrush, sunglasses, and rubber band. Susan then goes and thinks she feels a hairbrush, sunglasses and string. Frank was correct, so he wins!

Pick Up


Everyone links arms facing outward. Place a $10 bill in the center. Players try to get the prize while still keeping their arms linked in the circle.


Five friends link arms facing outward. There is a $10 bill placed on a pillow on the ground. Someone uses their feet to grab the $10. They win!

Pin the Tail on the Donkey


Tape the image of a donkey (without a tail) onto the wall. Each child is given a paper cut-out of a donkey’s tail with a small piece of tape. The child is then blindfolded and attempts to walk over and tape the tail to where he/she thinks it should go on the donkey image. The tail that is closest wins!


Mom tapes a donkey to the far wall in the room. She gives little Susan a tail cut-out and blindfolds her. Susan then slowly tries to tape the tail to the correct spot on the donkey. Then her friend Zoe attempts the same. Zoe is closest so she wins!



One person (the psychiatrist) leaves the room. Everyone remaining agrees to impersonate someone else in the room. This must be done in a pattern. Then the psychiatrist comes back in and asks everyone questions (which they answer as if they are the person they are impersonating) and tries to figures out the pattern.


Greg leaves the room. Everyone else in the room decides that they will impersonate the person to their left. Greg comes back and asks the first person what color hair they have, or what their age is. This helps Greg figure out the pattern and win the game.

Red Light/Green Light


One adult (or child) is appointed traffic guard. They stand at the finish line. Everyone else starts at the starting line. The traffic guard yells GREEN LIGHT, and the kids can race to the finish. But, they must stop when the guard yells RED LIGHT. Whoever is caught running during RED LIGHT must go back to start. Whoever crosses the finish line wins.


Franklin is the traffic guard. He yells, ‘GREEN LIGHT’ and all of the other kids run towards the finish line. He then yells, ‘RED LIGHT’ and everyone stops. However, he sees that Jenny took a few extra steps after he said ‘RED LIGHT’, therefore she has to go back to the start.

Rubber Chicken


Everyone sits around a rubber chicken. Players take turns trying to make at least one person laugh using only the rubber chicken as a prop. They only have one minute to do this.


Susie takes the rubber chicken and whips it around the room yelling, ‘I’m a cowboy!’ Fred laughs! Susie wins.

Spoons and Eggs


All contestants hold an egg in a spoon and wait at the starting line. Then, they race to the finish line. Whoever can cross the finish line first without breaking the egg is the winner.


James and his friends all receive spoons and eggs. James’ mother yells GO and they swiftly walk towards the finish line. James drops his egg but it does not break, so he picks it up with his spoon and continues to the finish line, narrowly beating out his friends.

Steal the Bacon


Two teams stand an equal distance apart. A ball is placed right in the middle of the playing field. One parent calls out the names of one or two children from each team. The children then race to grab the ball. Whichever team grabs the ball first must then make it back to their line without the other team tagging them.


Erica and Doug are called from opposite sides. Doug makes it to the ball first, grabs it, and turns to run back to his line. Erica tags Doug after he takes a few steps away so Doug loses. Erica’s team gets a point.

Tag ‘n Bag or Sticker Stalker


Everyone starts with 10 stickers. Over the course of the evening, whoever can place the most stickers on other people, without getting caught, wins.


Eric gets to a party and is handed 10 stickers. Throughout the evening, he strategically and sneakily places stickers on the backs of all of his friends without them noticing.

Treasure Hunters


One person hides items in a designated area. Then they write clues as to where each item is. The players break into teams and try to find all of the items on the list in a given time limit. Whichever team finds the most wins!


John’s team has a clue that says ‘This item is kept with the apples’. So, they check to see if the item is the apple tree in the yard. However, Jane’s team chooses to look in the refrigerator where the apples are kept cold. Jane’s team finds the item!

Tug of War


Place a flag or marker in the middle of a thick rope. Then break up children into two equal teams and have them stand behind lines equidistant from the middle of the rope. When the game starts, each side pulls on the rope to try to get the flag over their line.


Judy’s team stands on one side of the rope, with Tyler’s team on the other. Both teams pull extremely hard, but since Tyler’s side is stronger, they end up pulling the rope over their winning line.

Twenty Questions


One person thinks of an object or person. Then players are only allowed to ask 20 Yes or No questions to try to guess what it is. If they correctly guess the object, the next person goes.


John is thinking of actor Harrison Ford. The players ask questions like, ‘Is this a person?’, ‘Is this a famous person?’, ‘Is it a male?’. Finally, the players narrow it down enough so that Susan guesses, ‘Is he Harrison Ford.’ Susan wins!

Two Truths and a Lie


Each player tells three statements about themselves, except only two are truths and one is made up. The other players go around the room guessing which they think the lie is.


Frank says that he is 25, was captain of his baseball team, and once caught a 25 lb fish. All of the other players guessed that his age was the lie. They were right! He was only 22.

Whisper Down the Lane


Everybody arranges in a circle. One player starts the game by whispering a phrase in the ear of the person on his/her left. This gets repeated all the way around the circle until it reaches the start.


Mitzi whispers, ‘I took a drink from the fountain’ into the ear of Taylor. Then Taylor whispers what she thought she heard into the ear of the person next to her. By the end of the line, they realize that at some point something was miscommunicated, because the last person says ‘I snuck a drink from a falcon’.

Who Am I


Each player writes a name of a famous person on a card. The card is then given facedown to the person to their left. Then the cards are taped (or held) to each player’s forehead. Players take turns asking only yes or no questions to figure out the identity of the person on the card.


John has the name ‘President Obama’ on his card. He asks, ‘Am I famous?’, and the group answers, ‘Yes’. Next, Gwen, who has the name ‘Pocahontas’ on her forehead, asks ‘Am I male?’ and the group says, ‘No’. They keep asking questions until Gwen guesses the correct name on her card before John.
